The Indigenous first peoples of the Okanagan and Similkameen Valleys located in British Columbia, Canada, are the Okanagan Syilx people. They have lived on and protected these lands for thousands of years. Chief Robert Louie and his wife Bernice are descendants of the Syilx people and are connected to the land and its rich history.
The lands have been formed and protected over time with glacial ice, volcanic eruptions and geological events producing some of the best agricultural products in the world. It is from this environment and Indigenous culture that the concept of Indigenous World emerged. Every effort is being made to produce world class products in a respectful way to the environment, lands and its people.
Indigenous World merges the modern culture with Indigenous history.
